7:01 am
using the president's own words of a long time ago. >> republicans insist president obama's 1998 redistribution comments are represent what the president always believed and still believes. >> the trick is figuring out how do we structure government system that is pool resources and, hence, facilitate some redistribution, because i actually believe in redistribution. top u.s. security official told a senate panel wednesday the deadly attack in libya september 11th in which the ambassador and three others were killed was a terrorist strike. unemployment is way too high and home ownership is way too low, the recovery is happening. federal jury has awarded a man more than $7 million for lung damage caused by microwave popcorn. >> i would breathe it in because it smells good. riders stuck, dangling nearly four hours, 300 feet in the air. >> i'm just happy to be on the ground. a very close call has one police officer being called a hero. the officer pushes a woman out

7:03 am
americans he dismissed in a spech to big-money donors. jen crawford is in coral gables, florida, just outside miami. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah and charlie and to our viewers in the west. romney is on the offensive after taking hits for the past two days for those comments he made back in may at that fund-raiser when he said americans who don't pay federal income taxes are dependent on government. he is turning that right back at the president here in florida, obviously a key swing state saying it's the president's policies that will keep people more dependent. it's romney's second visit to florida in a week. now he's got a slightly different message. >> i don't want an america where we think the future of our nation is going to be guided by a government who -- that redistributes the income of the people. i want more incomes for everybody! >> reporter: romney is referring to a speech then state senator obama gaev in 1998, talking about government agencies to serve the working poor when he said this. >> i think the trick is figuring
7:04 am
out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution, because i actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level, to make sure that everybody's got a shot. >> reporter: that audio was made public tuesday as romney was doing damage control over his own leaked video from a may fund-raiser when he said 47% of americans who don't pay income taxes are victims. romney tried to make up some ground last night in a meet the candidate forum on univision, that the number that defines him is not 47%. >> my campaign is about the 100% of america. and i'm concerned about them. i'm concern ed about the fact that over the past four years, life has become harder for americans. >> reporter: he has since hit the president hard and brought that message here to florida where, as adam smith of the tampa bay times, points out,
7:05 am
must appeal to a wide section of voters. >> florida has this magical ability of being a microcosm of america. we really match america. >> reporter: latest gallup poll shows hispanic voters now favor the president 66% to 26%. but romney has done well with another key constituency here, senior scitizens. polls show romney with 53% and president obama with 38%. while many elderly people are are in that 47% of americans who pay no income taxes, those voters also believe more than any other age group that the country is on the wrong track. now campaign advisers thelma cbs he will keep hammering that message, keep the focus on the economy. there's been a lot of criticism about romney's campaign from some republicans. advisers tell me there's no major changes planned, fo fast shake-ups in the works. politico, an article is out that details some of the things that the campaign will do to reassure
7:06 am
its supporters. romney will step up his schedule. big event in nevada. he's going out west tomorrow, california oemp the weekend. and a big bus tour with his running mate, paul ryan. they have aa good rapport on the trail and advisers think that will work well. >> john dickerson is in our washington office. >> good morning, charlie. >> there you go about campaign insiders. what are republican insiders saying about this campaign and what it has to do? >> i've been on the phone with them the last several days. even more so than normal. there's a real sense of fear that romney really has one last shot. and that what he's got to do is find some way to connect with voter voters and then execute, sort of stay away from all of these distractions, some of which come out of nowhere. he doesn't control what videos pop up, but that he's got to find some way to actually do more than just assert that he's not barack obama. >> john, we have research from
7:07 am
cbs. and i want to show this poll. battleground states across america. if the election were held today that barack obama would probably win this contest. if you look at the electoral votes, just based on the state polling. i have a question about whether mitt romney is having a message problem or is he having a strategy problem, based on the fact that he held his first public rally in five days and that obama is outspending romney on television ads in these battleground states. >> well, when you talk to folks who have been -- veterans of republican politics, these are people that are close to the romney campaign. others haven't been running the show since, say, the bush or dole campaigns. they all point basically to the candidate and that the problems that governor romney is having are problems governor romney is having, not the campaign itself. those numbers are partially
7:08 am
those battleground state numbers, that you read there, are part of the reason that republicans are so panicked. republican politicians are starting to think about their own future as separate from romney. >> is mitt romney in charge of his schedule? there's only been one public rally in five days. >> no. he's not. well, in part, he is in charge of his schedule. if he said i want to be out there all day long, make it happen. of course, he could do that. part of the problem, though, is that the schedule over the last five days isn't what matters. the problem is that mitt romney hasn't found a way to connect with voter. that's a problem mitt romney has. no great sengalli behind him can fix that. >> how is the president using the power of the presidency? >> looks to him and say why haven't you improved things? a lot of disappointment in the electorate. that's what romney is trying to
7:09 am
tap into. what the president has tried to do, when he lands in ohio, he announces that he has gotten tougher on china in ways that will help car manufacturers in toledo. it's sort of becoming deliverable, using the power of the presidency to do two things. make the connection to say here are things i'm doing specifically that will change your life. but also to show that he can actually do something. part of the problem with the economic picture is just i impotency. these are ways he can show i'm doing things that can actual ly affect your life. >> i want to get your take on karl rove, who has an op-ed in "the wall street journal" saying this, too, shall pass, this moment of mitt romney. what follows is crucial. he says in mid september 1980, president jimmy carter led ronald reagan. by late october, reagan had slumped to 39% while carter had risen to 49% but reagan ended up winning by nine points.
7:10 am
is there an analogy there for mitt romney? can he turn it around the way reagan did in 1980? >> there is a glimmer of hope there. that analogy to hold couple of things has to happen. reagan -- excuse me, romney has to be as talented as ronald reagan. one thing you hear in conversations and interviews i've done, that -- a lot of people don't think he has those kind of skills. >> those things especially seen -- those kind of skills are seen in a debate as well. >> yes. >> thank you, john. secretary of state hillary clinton will be briefing members of congress behind closed doors, sure to have questions about last woek's attacks that killed the ambassador to libya and three of his aides. margaret brennan is on capitol hill. margaret? >> reporter: good morning to you, charlie. fbi still hasn't made it to the crime scene in benghazi. secretary clinton will give a classified account of the attacks on the u.s. consulate in libya. witnesses tell cbs news that there was never an anti-american
7:11 am
protest outside the consulate. instead they say it came under planned attack. that is in direct contradiction to the administration's account. that comes with complaints that the administration has not been forgetright. >> i'm just stunned and appalled that there wasn't better security for all of the american personnel at that consulate, given the high threat environment. >> now under law, state must establish a panel to investigate the attacks, report to congress within 60 days. today, secretary of state hillary clinton will outline what she is and is not willing to share. what's clear, charlie, is that the public won't get a detailed account of what happened until after the presidential election. >> margaret brennan, thank you. senior correspondent john miller, former assistant
7:12 am
director of the fbi is with us. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> who is this young man? >> he is a former al qaeda member was in guantanamo bay, released to libya. during the revolution when they let everybody out of the prisons, he was released there in march 2010 and became part of the revolution against gaud autograph gad autograph -- gaud agadhafi. he is a suspect on paper. there is intell about him. it's way too early to verify these reports. we've seen he is the prime suspect way too early. >> former guantanamo bay detainee ended up in this attack, killing one of our ambassadors, that would raise real questions. i know we don't have an answer yet about that. we did hear on capitol hill
7:13 am
yesterday matthews olson, director of the national counterterrorism center tell lawmakers that they believe that this was a terrorist attack, but it wasn't preplanned. how does that make sense? >> i think it doesn't make sense. whenever you torture the language, what's a terrorist attack versus a planned terrorist attack, let me tell you my definition of a terrorist attack is when people are firing rocket-propelled grenades at you and shooting and burning down your compound for political reasons. that's terrorism. whether it was preplanned or not is tough because in this environment in libya, in a normal place when people show up with weapons and cars and effective assault you say that requires preoperational planning. libya went through 13 months of this there's all kinds of militias with cars and weapons. it's one place that it can happen spontaneously. >> is it more likely to be spontaneous or preplanned? >> the jury is out on that,
7:14 am
charlie. i know we want answers and want answers now. you have a situation where intelligence officers are looking at the intercepts from the time of the attack, pressing human intelligence. then the criminal investigators, fbi on the ground, interviewing people and saying what happened here? >> john miller, thank you. now census figures coming out today show that the economic downturn may have bottomed out. 36.5 million, 12% of the population moved to a new home last year. also fewer young americans are living with their parents. rising mobility could mean americans are test iing out job prospects. this has been the worst u.s. economic slump since world war ii. if you're travel iing on american airlines this morning, check your flight. american has canceled hundreds of flights just this week and disruptions are expected to continue through next month. rebecca jarvis is here to show us why. >> charlie and norah, so far this week, american airlines and its regional carrier, american
7:15 am
eagle, have canceled more than 300 flights, more than three times the number of flights canceled by united, usair and delta combined. new cancellations have set off a war of words between american management and its pilots. american management blames the cancellation on a high number of pilots calling in sick, forcing the company to cut its scheduled flights through october. carrier and its pilots have been at odds over stalled contract negotiations. the battle escalated after american notified 11,000 employees that they could lose their jobs as part of the company's bankruptcy restructuring. while american says it expects the actual number to be more like 4,000, the news further angered the company's 7,500 pilots. the pilots union tells cbs news it has not actually noticed an increase in sick calls. but american reports that more pilots are putting in

maintenance -- some as minor asphalas faulty seatbelts, adding to delays. it's unclear whether this will be sorted out before the start of the busy holiday season right around the corner. >> that could be a mess. rebecca jarvis, thank you. more fallout from the fast and furious operation. two high-ranking officials announced they are stepping down. 471-page report was handed down on wednesday. the lead investigator testified to congress and will testify, i should say, this morning. cheryl at kkinson, who broke th story last year, reports more heads may be on the chopping block. >> reporter: the report calls 18 officials from the department of justice a justice, leaving attorney general unscathed, saying they left him in the dark of the gun operation fast and furious,
7:17 am
which let thousands of weapons fall into the hands of mexican drug cartels. according to the report, from 2009 to april 2010, suspects purchased over 1,300 firearms for more than $1 million. no arrests were made and just one seizure. two guns, ak-47 type rifles were found at the murder scene of border patrol agent brian terry. it will now be up to their internal investigators to decide whether and how to discipline them. >> republicans say they'll continue their fight to get documents when would under executive privilege exerted by president obama. >> we still have a responsibility to do our constitutional job of oversight. that means getting our hands on those 73,000, 74,000 pages of documents we don't have yet. >> reporter: meantime the inspector general recommends they launch top to bottom

reviews of public safety that was allowed to be disregarded, risking lives in the u.s. and mexico. cheryl atkinson, tucson, arizona. colorado prosecutors want to add ten more charges against james holmes, the suspect in the aurora theater massacre. 152 counts for the shooting spree that killed 12 people and wounded dozens of others. chick-fil-a will stop donating to organizations that oppose same-sex marriage. this summer the fast food company's president created an uproar with his comments, defending traditional marriage. in response, several cities looked to block chick-fil-a from expanding. the company says it will no longer discuss hot button political issues. fewer americans are commuting solo. number of workers driving to work alone dropped slightly from 2010 to 2011 with a slumping economy and rising gas prices. commutes on public

[ speaking foreign language ] [ audience booing ] >> i don't know. welcome back to cbs "this morning." >> we're watching the referees more than usual because they are replacing the regular referees.

they have been making their fair share of mistakes. all eyes are on them this week beginning tonight. jeff glor is here. good morning. >> good morning. ever concern during the offseason week one wasn't so bad. then week two when many hit the panic button especially after monday night what is supposed to be showcase for the nfl turned into more of a side show. >> the press cards from the four super bowls that i've refereed. >> he spent 4 years in the nfl. >> it's a crime to let them officiate these games. the league says they are doing a good job and get better every week. my personal opinion is they will not get better every week, they will get worse. >> the ruling on the field has been reversed. >> on monday replacement officials were marking off incorrect yardage, missing turnovers and causing extreme delays.
7:32 am
>> it's ruining the momentum of the game and affecting the outcome. >> clocked in the end zone. >> that after sunday. >> a lot of ravens fans went what? >> clock running at the wrong time. pass interferences. one man pulled from a game last minute when it was discovered he was a new orleans saints fan about to ref a saints game. the league for its part is not talking publicly. they released a statement saying officiating is never perfect. current be officials have made great strides and are performing admirably under unprecedented scrutiny and great pressure. >> you have to sit there and wait. one thing you don't want to do is put the game into the officials hands. >> everybody talks about the integrity of the game and things like that. i think this is kind of along those lines. >> are they right? >> to a degree they are. it's a hard argument to make
7:33 am
that the replacement refs offer you a chance to put your best product on the field. >> the divide between both sides is over pension plans. officials want to keep them, the nfl wants to shift 2401 ks. and it's about salaries. officials earning an average of $149,000 a year want more. but the increase success requested and on to a 1.7% of the league's annual revenue, $9.3 billion. that's not all. >> falls under the heading of church change for nfl. it's about control. they want to make sure they maintain control of their referees. the pension issue is important but i think this deal could get done with very little financial strain for the nfl. it's kind of remarkable that it's gotten this far. >> which side overplayed their hand here or did both >> to a degree both did. >> as week three begins the most successful operation in pro sports is facing an increasing

7:35 am
but that said even if they reach a deal then you have to deal with the logistics getting them back on the field and scheduling travel. so it would be at least into week to your or five. >> it points out one thing that good refs are important to the game. >> absolutely. these guys are pros. the replacements are not hacks. they have some experience. they are just not professional nfl referees. >> our nfl correspondent, jeff glor. >> i like that. >> they are trying to play catch up with verizon and at&t. we'll ask sprint ceo if the iphone 5 can turn things around. >> according to a new power lift oprah winfrey is losing clout. we'll ask her how she feels about that on cbs "this morning".

8:11 am
i stand corrected. >> okay. >> are you concerned about where you are on any list? >> oh, for heaven's sake, no. you know, i think anybody who is successful in their own life understands that the most important thing is to take ownership of wherever your ranking is, whatever your standing is. and you know, i've been very honored and flattered over the years to be on various lists. but for me, the most important thing is what you do with that ranking. that's why today i think there's "forbes" magazine coming out -- >> we've got it. >> that talks about -- you've got it? okay, do you have the cover? that talks about the importance of really what you do with wherever you are in your life and so for me that's the most important thing is how i use what my position, what my abilities, what my success has been able to do for other people.
8:12 am
>> and so, oprah, talk about that. this is norah here. i'm gayle's new bff. >> hi, norah, welcome! welcome to the family. >> thank you, thank you. so, tell us what you are doing and how is own doing and how is the magazine doing? >> well, i will tell you this, that this is a tough time for magazines, all magazines, and that's why we're very proud for our e-edition of "o" magazine. we've been in business for 12 years. i've done about 120 covers. i'm really excited about what's happening at own. you know, when i was on in april, we were going through some tough times. i'm happy to report that we have made the turn, and it's been like turning the ship around in the middle of a small canal, but we've made the turn, and i'm really just so thrilled about so much of the programming. this past weekend, "fixed my life" posted phenomenal ratings
8:13 am
two nights in a row and aired on saturdays and people were excited and twitter was trending. we have so many new exciting shows coming up. the key for me was getting engaged myself and also getting engaged in the programming, and getting the right team in place and we've been able to do that and that's really exciting. >> oprah, that sounds a bit like what you had to do with your schools in south africa, when you got engaged and focused on them, you turned it around and made it work, and now you've got students attending college in america. >> yeah, yeah. that's why i love that "forbes" article out today. it talks about that so well. i would have to say, charlie, you are so astute because i actually -- all the time, gayle will tell you that i use the school and my struggles and challenges with getting the school in shape, leadershipwise and otherwise, to the network. and it took about five years. and in five years, i will tell
8:14 am
you, the most rewarding thing i've ever experienced is not the graduation, which at the time i thought was the most rewarding thing for me was recently being in boston, putting my girls in school and going to bed, bath & beyond and -- >> wait, stop, stop. wait, oprah, stop. i really have to tell a story about that. so, do we have a picture? oprah calls me up and goes, we went to a store called bed, bath & beyond, have you heard of it? i said everyone's heard of it! she goes, i didn't know what it was. i thought it was a little boutique, but it's really a cool store. and you go at the worst possible time when it's packed, but you really liked the experience with bed, bath & beyond and target. >> i was just going to say, target. >> i really like the experience of -- >> go ahead. >> target, bed, bath & beyond. i really like the experience. but i will tell you, of all the things i've done with the school, i woke up on the morning that we were going shopping, and it really hit me that, oh, my god, we really did this, you know? nobody does anything alone, and
8:15 am
it again is about getting the right leadership in place and getting the girls to a point where they can use the education that we provided. so, now you're right, we have a number of girls in schools in the united states and a number, everybody in this entire graduation class is in college. so, that's all exciting. to be able to do that with your ranking, wherever you're ranked on anybody's list to me is a very good thing. >> but oprah, i have to say, when i got the list and i saw you were 50 out of 50, i found myself just a little irritated. you didn't have a moment where you go, okay, okay, "fortune," i can go from this to this? that didn't phase you at all? >> well, first of all, gayle, i wouldn't have known that the magazine was out or that i was on the list if you hadn't have called me. >> yeah, that's true. >> no, it didn't phase me at all. >> that is true. that is true. op op >> oprah, you have been on the list for 15 years and no one has been on it all those years, but
8:16 am
it is great to see all the women out there, leading businesses and also what they're doing, not just at work, but also the philanthropy that they're doing on the side. talk about that in terms of giving back, the importance of giving back. >> well, you know, i believe that everybody's life -- you know, there's a wonderful bible verse that i love that i bring up that's sort of become my mantra that says only what you do for christ will last. and i think if you substitute the christ for goodness and for grace, if you substitute the word for doing good things in life, i think what you do that is lasting in the world, that really changes somebody else's life, yours gets changed in return. so, for me, it's all about using what you have, no matter where you are, whether it's your own small cupcake business or whether you're running, you know, a major corporation, using
8:17 am
whatever you have to be able to give back to other people in a way that benefits them and yourself. >> we started talking about the movie, and i really, really appreciate, we all do, that you've been up all night and that you still agreed to do this. but you talked about being part of the ensemble. forrest whitaker plays your husband, and you all have a scene -- >> yes. >> i can't wait to see -- >> i adore him! yes. >> i can't wait to see you and forrest as husband and wife. there is a kissing scene you were talking about the other day. did you feel all tingly? >> i felt pretty good about it, let me just say. forrest is a good kisser, how about that? thank you, kisha whitaker! >> i just thought you and lenny kravitz, jane fonda, robin williams. it's a big cast. >> well, that's why i was saying to charlie, it really is an ensemble. and for me, it's not so much about -- i have a wonderful acting coach now. and for me, it's not so much good the acting as it is abot i being able to work with an
